“Angel is a character with a lot of shadows. He’s got a dark side and a good side. Buffy brought out the good in him. She made him want to be a better man, that’s what I think was so special about them. I mean here you have a character that has so much darkness in him, but this one girl, who is so bright and alive…Because of her and his love for her he becomes a better man. That’s amazing.” - David Boreanaz
Anjin Anhut was inspired by X-Men: First Class to redesign the original five mutant team of Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Angel, and Iceman.
”Mutants are outcasts of society finding solace, company and purpose in Xavier’s school for gifted youngsters. So my goal was to make their mutations not only very visible, but to a certain degree disfiguring. Something that renders them to be freaks on the surface, so that they can show their humanity in their deeds.”
